When I googled and pinterested (Is that a verb? It should be), I couldn't find too many ideas, besides very expensive fridge frame magnets (like picture frames, but with powerful magnets). So, I headed to my happy place (JoAnn Fabrics) on a random shopping trip, and happened on the PERFECT thing in the clearance rack. It was like divine intervention. So, I whipped up:
Enter: Darice Magnetic Pages. I think you're supposed to use them with some sort of fancy cutter thingy, but I don't have one of those. When searching online for a product like this, search for "Magnetic Sheets" or "Magnetic Pages".
1. First, I measured and drew several different size frames out of each page (I know, it's hard to see!)
2. By folding in each page in half, I was able to snip a hole from which I could cut out of the rest of each frame.
3. Then, came the fun yet hard part - Making it purdy!
I tried a few things:
1) Coloring them with a gold, metallic pen
2) Cutting out various pretty scrapbooking papers and mod podging them on
3) Painting them with acrylic paints
After many experiments, coloring them with gold pen worked best. Make sure to let the frames dry thoroughly before handling them!!! My second favorite were the scrapbooking papers. The thicker the paper the better, otherwise it can curl. Unfortunately, the paint slid right off the frame and required a LOT of coats.
I use each magnet to "frame" my son's artwork and my favorite photos. Another way to get creative is to cut "photo corners" out of the magnets and use them to hang up pictures of various sizes.
